> Course Description:
> This course examines race, racism and the black experience in the Americas from an anthropological perspective. Comparing and contrasting the lived experiences of contemporary members of the African diaspora, it will examine issues such as: the scientific and social construction of race; racism and social and health inequality; whiteness and privilege; blackness as an individual and social identity; and the intersection of race, gender, and class. The course also examines the relationship between identity and the production of cultural products such as music, dance, and religion across the Americas. Lastly, the course explores social justice movements and acts of resistance against discrimination and pervasive inequality. Readings, films, written assignments, and discussions will underscore how the politics of race and ethnicity as well as the discourse on culture and identity, shape and influence social relations and individual experiences throughout the Americas.
> Includes: Daily scheduled activities and excursions with Cuban students to cultural events (music, dance, theater), national parks, beaches, museums, and to visit a hospital and clinic.
> 
> Student Research: Students will conduct life history interviews with English-speaking Cuban students, and be interviewed by Cuban students as part of a collaborative research project to be completed by Geneseo student participants in the Spring 2019 semester.
> 
> This program is the recipient of the SUNY Chancellor’s Grant for Innovative Study Abroad.
> 
> Anticipated Schedule:
> 12/26-12/31: Pre-departure online coursework
> 1/2-1/3: Pre-departure retreat in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY
> 1/4-1/19: Cuba
